Discover Israel- Day 10

Our day began at the Western Wall. It is a privilege to be allowed to pray here with our Jewish brothers and sisters.

Looking out over Jerusalem, it is a joy to see the thriving city!

We experience the crowded streets.

There’s a vast difference between the city today and that of the city in the days of King David!

Archeologists seem to think these stairs are original from those days.

At Yad Vashem, this promise stands etched in stone. In the Word of God, it is written for eternity.

We had 3 hours to spend here. Our hearts bled with pain and with sympathy for the injustice to the Jewish people in the period of history this memorial stands for!!

Can we rejoice in hope for the Promises in the unchangeable Word of God? Will we stand with Israel? Have you ever thought to ask this question: ‘How will we keep it from happening again?’ America has had some serious Nazi-like hate crimes committed against American Jews- such as burning synagogues and ransacking graveyards. After going through the Holocaust Museum, I wanted to hug every Jew I see. I asked a young Jewish girl this question: “How can we support your people?” Her answer was: “Go and talk about what happened. Create awareness of the Holocaust.” Will we be a silent bystander?

They came for the Communists, and I did not object, for I was not a Communist. They came for the Socialist, and I did not object, for I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not object, for I was not a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to object… ~ Martin Niemoller, German pastor
